Morning all, bit of a lay in after the exuberant day yesterday. In Leeds first with a surfacing repair and being joined by Christine in a bit. Later to Hull by the bridge for multiple repairs then we’ll drive to Essex in convoy.

Have fun all…

Morning all. After busy day yesterday it's in the office to do some work.

And hopefully get paid for some of my hard (ish) work.

Then to spend some more on stuff for the house. Internal door latches, hinges and handles is todays expense.

Any recommendations of where to go? The Wickes website is hard work (on my phone at least).

Ironmongery Direct is my usual port of call or DoorfurnitureDirect ( used to be Bernards in Birkenhead but sadly they've closed the physical store). Loads more choice than the sheds and I've always had much better quality.

There's a bloke just round the corner who buys, restores and sells these we are in discussion about a BBQ Ape for Chez McInerney :)
This one belonged to the Agustas who owned our Flaminia. Sold last year at auction. Would have been great for taking friends up to town here in Cardigan.

Wow, what a tough day! Just got in after convoy drive back from Hull with Christine. The weather started with drizzle about 10 and just got progressively heavier till we crossed the Humber!

Morning Matt, morning C, morning all……Sounds like the perfect weather before you get back to old Blighty Matt. Feels colder here this morning…I’m not liking the darker mornings and having to put the fire in in the lounge this morning.

Good Morning Hump Day again.

Morning all, getting the GS out for use later as the van lock replacement won’t be happening until 16.30 and I’ll need to be away for kayaking. I’ll have to use a club boat tonight.

Repairs locally to do first.

Have fun all….

Good news is that the GS gets to stretch its legs, fella. You'll enjoy the run across to Burnham (?) in that.

Morning all.

Ironmongery Direct Came up trumps. Ordered last night about about 8pm and my order will be delivered at some point today!
Free of charge. Which is fairly impressive. Decent prices as well.

Morning all. Just dropped the Jag off for a service and MOT that I had forgotten was due. Doh!
I put my spare bike in it to ride to the office as I didn't fancy the walk.
And then forgot to pump the tyres up on it.

So although I got here, it wasn't as comfortable as it would normally have been.

A few calls this morning and then back home to put the lorry load of Ikea bedroom furniture together which is being delivered today.
